This semester I took a class about the philosophy of technology. Like environmental ethics, phil of tech is a relatively new discipline when compared to the age of philosophy as a whole. Also like environmental ethics, the concepts presented in phil of tech are particularly relevant in addressing the most urgent problems of our modern age. Below I have shared a link to a research paper I recently completed that incorporates environmental ethics into a proposed moral framework for artificial intelligence. I think that it poses some interesting philosophical questions about our duties to non-human entities with respect to the impending creation of AI that have the potential to be more intelligent, capable, and moral than humans.
